  When a client communicates their experience with you, your team and your organization, are you hearing their message and really listening? Sharing good experiences with your company and complimenting your team is great to hear.   What are they actually trying to tell you?   How do you react to the compliment? Listen to what they are sharing with you.   Understand what sets you and your team apart.   What if the message is neutral as in yes we had an OK experience with your...

  Embracing change is one of my favourite topics.   Enjoy and as always look forward to your comments. 1.  Open-Minded It is not easy to always be open-minded, however, we must always have an open-mind.   Relying on just the past and doing things the same way will not necessarily result in future success.  Just because "we always did it that way" does not mean it is the best way. Look at the constant change, the number of new requests and the fast pace of...

  What do you find in your everyday interactions you would like to change?  What are you passionate enough about to make a difference? Channel your emotions into positive energy and change it.   Yes, go ahead and change it.   You know you want to.   What you may not know is you do have the power within you. Be specific and set a goal.   Reach out to people who care as much as you do and ask them to help support your cause. ...

  This week we revisit this topic on what qualities do successful teams have.  Thanks for those who have shared their qualities and welcome your comments and feedback. These are 5 qualities The AlphaKORians' demonstrate every day. 1.  Collaboration Working together on projects, whether they are client-driven or company-driven, the Team seeks input and expertise from each other as required to complete tasks.

  This week's topic was inspired by Noah Fleming's Tuesday Tidbits.   Follow Noah and sign up for his tidbits at www.noahfleming.com Be Genuine and Be Real Does this sound familiar?  We hear many times how genuine and real we are.   We do care and we take pride in all we do.   This builds long-term relationships based on trust and integrity.   They key is to "stop selling" and focus on how the other person wants to be treated.  One secret most of us do...

  How do you know if an opportunity qualifies or does not qualify? You receive an inquiry for some information and request if your company can help.   What are your processes to respond to this request?   Do you delegate it, do you respond directly, do you ask questions and take care of the request? Many business peers I talk to seem to have different ideas and approaches.   Some are very successful while others seem to have challenges with qualifying opportunities.  I always feel...

  Being proactive takes a bit of effort and discipline to do this on a consistent basis.   Of course, being reactive is a lot easier and usually is the excuse why we are not as proactive as we know we should be. There are many areas in your business you can take the initiative instead of waiting for someone to reach out to you.  Look at your daily tasks and see how many are reactionary versus proactive.    Look at the reactionary list...

  This topic keeps coming up and thanks to those who asked to blog again about prioritizing.  Do you prioritize based on certain criteria?  The worth of the task?  FIFO or LIFO? (just ask if you do not know what these are).  What you like or dislike the most/least? With the volumes of information hitting us daily, prioritizing has become extremely important to successfully move forward.  Part of the ongoing process needs to include knowing when to say no, as much as...

  What are your top networking tips?  All of us network and a large number of us attend events to make new contacts and create opportunities. 1. Arrive Early and Linger Longer Make it your goal to at least arrive early or linger longer and ideally if you can do both.   When you arrive early, you can pick the spot you feel comfortable with, take in the room and feel comfortable.   You can get to know the organizer and sometimes get to know...

  Do you ever stop and think about what is your purpose in life and in business?  It is a tough one to actually do this and to figure it out if you have not already.   Sure, I know what you are thinking:  You do not have a purpose.   The truth is yes you do!   We all do. Let's start with your personal purpose.  What role do you play in your family and with your friends?  Sit back and think about your...
